LAFAYETTE, La. — Lafayette High School graduate Bailey Auzenne has been named the winner of the Virginia Miniex-Margo St. Julian Simien Scholarship from Simien & Miniex law firm.

According to a release from the law firm, the Miniex and Simien families award the $500 scholarship each year to deserving high school graduates who strive to do well in furthering their education.

The Virginia Miniex and Margo St. Julian Simien Scholarship was established to honor the beliefs of Mrs. Virginia Miniex and Mrs. Margo St. Julian Simien that obtaining a good education is pivotal in a young person's life and that it creates a solid foundation to prepare them for the future, the release states.

The release states that in addition to this year's scholarship award, senior applicants who registered to vote and were entering college were able to enter the Voter Registration Drawing to win $500 to be used to defray college
expenses.

The winner of this year's drawing is Dylan Delasbour, who will be attending Xavier University where she plans to major in Biochemistry.
